Putting F250 blocks on an F350

What all is involved in putting f250 blocks on my f350 srw? I know I will need to get the shorter blocks from an f250, but what else? Will I need to do something with the driveline or need shorter shocks? Thanks for your help!

I'm not planning on doing it for another month or so. Just wanted to make sure I had all of my ducks in a row. Thanks for the info man!

It will make it easier to load equipments and supplies into the bed for work. Plus is will bring the rear down to help give the truck a leveled look. I know that once I put an actual level kit or lift kit on, then the stockish wheels and tires will look small and awkward. That will lead to wanting bigger tires/wheels and worse mpg's. So I figure this will be easier on the wallet for the time being.

So the truck sits level, and those of us that use our trucks for work makes it easier to load, 2" makes a big difference

As said all you need is bolts and blocks, I'm happy the way mine sits with the 33" tires

mustangman, how close to level does your truck sit now with 250 blocks under it (I'm assuming by your comment that you did the same thing I am thinking of doing)? Nice truck btw.
